BIOGRAPHY

Martin Murphy works in a wide range of media, including video, photography, audio, and installation. In many of his videos and video installations, such as Split Mirror Syndrome, TV-Vacations, Meridians, and Russian Halls, Murphy examines social and philosophical systems of thought, particularly those involving the deconstruction of classical logic. Underlying these works is a psychological context, through which complex narratives incorporate the fragmentation of seemingly real scenarios. Often disorientating, they invite viewers to suspend their waking consciousness while creating new networks of meaning. Murphy received his BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute, and his MFA from Hunter College. His work has been exhibited internationally in venues such as the De La Cruz Collection (Miami, FL), Steinek Gallery (Vienna), Art In General (New York, NY), "The Last Day of Magic" at the 53rd Venice Biennial (Detournement, Venice, Italy), and the HBC Center (Berlin, Germany). His solo exhibition "Don't Forget to Crash" was at Dorsch Gallery in March 2010. He has shown with Dorsch Gallery since 2008. Martin Murphy lives and works in New York, NY.
